    I use 100gr spbt Interlock's not Sierra,but 36gr of H380 withCCI mag primer is super sweet shooting in my Tikka. Quarter inch all day, infact its probally the best shooting round i use in it

    I'm using the sierra pro hunter 100 grain in .243, Norma brass, federal 210 match large rifle primers & 40.5 grains of Hogdon H 4831. Fired from a Tikka T3 varmint - it works for me

    Was using 85 grn Sierra bullets with ( a worked up load of ) 42 grn of H380, and it was a superb load - IN MY RIFLE...

    However, one day I picked the incorrect box of bullets from the cabinet, and loaded 100grn bullets with the same powder load. I walked away from the firing of the first round it with a bruised right jaw, and a black eye, and a note to self to double check everything before the components are reloaded.

    Good bullet, and good powder, but only needs small increments to change performance. I now use IMR 4350, for the .243, and am finding that a excellent powder aswell.

    All the best.

    I use H380 x 36gns with Sierra 100gn bullets and Federal mag primers.
    For 87gn or Sierra 85gn bullets I use 40gns of H380 with the Federal mag primer.
